Toronto Coun. Justin Di Ciano requested a key change to a planning report last Wednesday that is to the benefit of Etobicoke-based home builder Dunpar Developments Inc. — a developer with which Di Ciano has had personal and professional ties.
Dunpar wants to build 72 townhomes and a three- to four-storey commercial building in an area of Mimico that is currently used predominantly for industrial and commercial purposes. Numbered companies controlled by Dunpar own three properties in the Judson lands, the city’s name for the space south of Judson Street, which runs between Royal York Road and Islington Avenue.

In a report, city planners recommended against allowing any new residential development on the site because it sits right beside one of Canada’s busiest rail corridors and an expanding Metrolinx train maintenance facility.
